Excerpts from her announcement.
In the course of the today’s events it becomes necessary for us to address among other grievances the Presidents failure to faithfully execute the law.
In America no one is above the law. Over the past few weeks through the intelligence committee working with the foreign affairs and oversight committees the American people have heard the testimony of truly patriotic career public servants, distinguished diplomats and decorated war heroes, some of the Presidents own appointees.
The facts are uncontested, the President abused his power for his own personal political benefit at the expense of our national security by withholding military aid and a crucial oval office meeting in exchange for an announcement of an investigation into his political rival.
Yesterday the judiciary committee the American people heard testimony from leading American constitutional scholars who illuminated without a doubt that the Presidents actions are a profound violation of the public trust. The President’s actions have seriously violated the constitution especially when he says and acts on the belief article 2 says I can do whatever I want. No. His wrong doing strikes at the very heart of our constitution. A separation of powers. Three co equal branches. Each a check and balance on the other. A Republic, if we can keep it said Benjamin Franklin.
